Start on good holds and shoot straight up the face, avoiding the left arete and the ledge system and corner out right. Gain a slopey crimp, get a good high foot, and pull down until the lip is within reach. This is listed as a 5.11b in Swartling's guidebook (3rd edition) but its height seems more fitting of a bouldering grade and listing.
This is a ways above the main concentration of the Hogleg/Anchorpoint group, but I couldn't think of a better place to put this. The problem is immediately right of the unnamed 5.5 chimney on Picnic Wall, and climbs the narrow face between that chimney and a ledge that is at 10-12 feet.
Pad and spotter.
